Alexandre Lacazette and Dani Ceballos return while Willian is only fit to make the bench as Arsenal prepare to take on West Brom at the Hawthorns.
Mikel Arteta has made two changes to the side that started in the 1-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion last time out in the Premier League as Arsenal get set to lock horns with West Brom at the Hawthorns. There are no shuffles in goal, where Bernd Leno keeps his place ahead Runar Alex Runarsson.
In front of him, the four-man backline remains unchanged as well. Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney continue as the full-back pairing while Pablo Mari partners Rob Holding at the heart of the Arsenal defence, leaving the fit-again David Luiz on the bench.

Up ahead in midfield, the first change of the night sees Dani Ceballos return. The Spaniard comes in for Mohamed Elneny to pair up with Granit Xhaka in the double pivot, while Emile Smith Rowe retains his spot higher up the pitch. Elneny and Joe Willock are the midfield backup options.
Finally, in attack, captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang starts again, while Bukayo Saka is fit enough to make the starting lineup. The final spot in the side sees Alexandre Lacazette come in for Gabriel Martinelli, possibly to lead the line for Arsenal against West Brom, while the fit-again Willian is on the bench.
Arsenal Starting Lineup: Leno, Bellerin, Holding, Mari, Tierney, Ceballos, Xhaka, Saka, Smith Rowe, Aubameyang, Lacazette.
